Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Simonsky and receive a straightforward answer.
Dr. Simonsky and our entire team follow procedures recommended by Canadian federal and provincial agencies: These measures include:
- Disinfectant hand sanitizers
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of counter-tops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
- Daily biological testing of Auotoclave Sterilizer
- Licensed disposal of bio-waste materials
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use ultrasonic pre-cleaning and an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.
The best defence against disease is information. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel. We are very proud of our ‘safety first’ approach to you dental treatment.
